On Sunday 26th July Itchenor members gathered for the launch party of our new and very special boat. She was named "Quadrille" by Clare Blevins to the delighted applause of Itchenor members. Quadrille is a coastal quad sculling boat with sliding seats for a crew of 4 plus cox. She is 10.7 metres long and weighs 150 kilos, so 4-6 people should be able to lift her.
